People revamp sites and make colossal mistakes
Yeah, like they follow the Google Guideline to build their site for visitors not search engines and really mess things up almost every time!
Maybe they need to edit that one too, like adding 'almost' to the nothing a competitor can do to harm your site...
I think this might be more accurate: "Build your site for visitors, not search engines, unless of course you already have a site built, then either don't update it or make sure you build it for us to see as the same, never mind cost, budget, visitor friendliness, and don't even think about changing the position of the links on the page, the text in those links, or even the page load order, because it'll tank you every time, so if you're rebuilding, feel free to do as you please, but don't really change anything if you want to retain your rankings..."
Not picking on you incrediBILL, but more the irony of the 'guidelines' people are advised to follow being a huge pit fall.
